New designs just in time for the holidays!

bluepeacockfsThat’s right, folks.  I’ve been busy, and I have FINALLY had time to photograph and get some fresh new designs up on the website. It’s been a long time.  I really long time.  Between the boxes and the shuffling of papers, I just haven’t found the time.  But I spent some time on my website last week, and decided that it really needed some freshening up.  So I have cleared out some clutter, and added lots of new work, all for your perusal.  Just visit the SHOP section of my website, and you’ll see lots of new!

And you’ll be happy to know that there’s even more coming down the pipelines.  I have a show at Portfolio Art Gallery in Columbia, SC this-coming Saturday, December 4th.  So I will be a busy beaver all week, creating more new pieces for the weekend’s event.

I’ll try to post some more pics as these pieces come together.

I hope you all had a fabulous Turkey Day.  I actually took Friday off too, and Aveesh and I relaxed by the fire.  It was so wonderful and rejuvinating.  I also have a new yoga DVD that has me feeling rather on-top-of-the-world-ish.  So things are looking up for me!

Off to melt some glass ;-)

I pray for grace

dsc04589Do you ever feel like things just aren’t right?  Not just a few things.  Everything.  It’s like the opposite of the Golden Touch.  Nothing is aligned right.  As hard as I try to envision and expect Divine Order, I end up with mishaps and mess-ups and madness and muck.  I don’t know why, and I have tried to figure it out.  I am remaining positive, my spirits are up, I am taking care of things, planning ahead, working hard, being healthy, but something is amiss.  It keeps going on and on, and just when I think “this is it, we’re going up from here,” there it goes….worse.  It’s amazing, really.  The only thing I can say is that I realize this is what I am supposed to be experiencing right now, and so I embrace what is going on in my life.  I am completely accepting of whatever life has in store for me.  And so onward I go.

Does this ever happen to you?  Do you ever feel like you just need to hit “Restart” and start over again?  What do you do to realign?  Do you have any advice?

If you’re the praying kind, please say a prayer for me.  I believe in the power of  intention, and in the power of many minds together to control the outcome of things. So say a prayer for me, for Divine Order, abundance, and grace.  For your thoughts, tips, and prayers, I am thankful.

Happy Divali Sale!

Happy Divali!  The festival of Divali, for which my jewelry is named, is today, November 5.  This year, Divali coincides with the start of my first holiday show and Aveesh’s birthday.  I think all of these coincidences are very auspicious, and Divali is an auspicious day in itself: a celebration of light and color, and a time of giving thanks and love.

And so I invite you to celebrate with me by taking 15% off of all web purchases for the month of November.

It’s been an unusual year for me, and a year of hard work.   Aveesh, Finn, and I moved our home and businesses across the country, and are now happily settled in Charlotte, NC.  We are loving our new home, and are happy to be close to family again.
With all of the chaos of the move, I have had little time at the torch.  With the holidays upon us, I have finally gotten my studio back up and running, and am making jewelry as fast as my little fingers can melt glass.

Celebrate the color and light in your life, and get a jump-start on your holiday shopping with this special offer.  Most pieces will be made to order, so this is a perfect time to order a Divali piece that strikes your fancy.  I will coordinate with you regarding your delivery time-frame, but most pieces will ship within 2 weeks.  I have a wonderfully vibrant selection of new jewels available that have not even made it onto the website yet.  I will be posting these pieces on the Divali Glass Jewelry Facebook page, and I’ll post some below.  If you are interested in any of these, please message me.

To use the 15% off coupon, please enter “Divali2010″ at checkout on the Divali website.

The sale also includes all pieces in my Temple Singh collection,


which are shown at This site is not e-commerce enabled, so you can message me with any inquiries about these pieces as well.

Here’s wishing you a Happy Divali, and many thanks for your continued support.  And here are a few new designs too!
